1999 Dodge Ram 1500 sport OD question

Asked by Feb 03, 2016 at 10:20 PM about the 1999 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Truck has 250K miles. Runs like a champ. I was
pulling my trailer with 2 snowmobiles on a 200 mile
trip. During the last few miles I started hearing a
gringing noise when in OD. Mechanic told me that
the OD portion of the torque converter was going
bad but that as long as I towed my trailer without
OD that it wouldn't do any further damage to the
torque converter.  Said I'd be able to continue
driving and towing as long as I didn't use OD.  
Anyone's thoughts?

1 Answer

Basically what I want to know is if I pull my trailer without OD on, will it prevent any further damage to the torque converter?
